Policy of Truth is a loose-fitting pullover with lace adorning the high-low bottom edges and sleeves. Casual yet dressy, timeless yet contemporary, the truth is, this piece is simple in shape with just enough complication to keep you interested.

Construction Notes:
The pullover is constructed from the bottom up. Front and back bottom lace are worked separately, in rows. They are then joined and the pullover continues in one piece to the underarms. Front and back are then worked separately in rows to the shoulders. Sleeves are knit in the round and joined to the body. The lace instructions are both written and charted.
